Where to find raw milk ?

Just read a very interesting article about raw milk on Salon ( and now I'm thinking I'd like to have some. I've only had it once when I was in Montreal and remember it being mighty deliciuos...

Any recommendations of where to get raw milk both in San Francisco and nearby?

  1. Just looked up on Organic Pastures' site and it seems that Whole Foods and Rainbow both carry it, as well the Berkeley Bowl.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of who makes the best raw milk around these parts?

    1. Alameda Natural Grocery carries a couple of different lines. Be warned, it's expensive compared to regular milk or even organic milk.

      1. Don't know who makes the best, but I've gotten it at Whole Foods in Marin. I don't remember the brand name, but it's the same company that used to sell at the Marin Farmers' Market a year or two ago.

        1. i saw it today at whole foods in the peninsula (mtn view).

          1. Hello, just wanted to update this thread in case anyone comes across it looking for raw milk. Whole Foods no longer carries raw milk. I know Falletti Foods, Mollie Stone's, and Lunardi's carries Organic Pastures raw milk. The latter two just recently started, which is fantastic news. Bi-Rite carries the Claravale Farm brand which I find superior.

            Falletti Foods
            308 Broderick St, San Francisco, CA

            Mollie Stone's
            851 Cherry Ave # 22, San Bruno, CA

              Real food bay area

              They delivers all over the bay area - raw cow and goat milk...

              Also Piazza's in Palo Alto and Country Sun in Palo Alto have it - prices are much better through the coop of real food bay area - and the milk is fresher...within 24 hours of being pumped
